Anti-Muslim group will rally in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — ACT for America will have one of their rally’s at Milwaukee’s Federal Courthouse, a local TV station reported Monday.


Milwaukee’s Federal Courthouse is listed as one of the locations for ACT for America’s national America First rally.

Islamic Society of Milwaukee spokesman Munjed Ahmad said he was saddened to hear the organization labeled as an extremist anti-Muslim group by the Southern Poverty Law Center plans to rally in Milwaukee.

“It’s my hope that most of the people attending these anti-Muslim rallies are just ignorant and they’re not something worse than ignorant,” he said.

ACT for America’s website said the rally is in support of President Donald Trump’s immigration and border policies. Two months ago, one of their anti-Muslim marches turned violent in Minnesota.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has listed ACT for America as an extreme anti-Muslim group.
